Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic effects of insomnia accompanied with depressive disorders treated by acupuncture of relieving depression and regulating mind and oral administration of Trazodone. METHODS: Sixty-five cases were randomly divided into a acupuncture group (33 cases) and western medication group (32 cases). In acupuncture group, Shenmen (HT 7), Baihui (CV 20), Hegu (LI 4) and Taichong (LR 3) were selected. In western medication group, Trazodone was applied with oral administration for 4 weeks. The curative effect comparison was carried on by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), and Side Effect Rating Scale (SERS) of Asberg. RESULTS: The cured and markedly effective rate of 72.7\% (24/33)in acupuncture group was superior to that of 46.8\% (15/32) in western medication group; after treatment, the scores of all items and the total cumulative scores of PSQI and SDS of both groups were reduced (P < 0.01, P < 0.05), of which, the sleep quality and daytime function evaluation in acupuncture group reduced more obviously than those in western medication group (both P < 0.05); the SERS scores of Asberg in western medication group were higher than those in acupuncture group. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture treatment of relieving depression and regulating mind is superior to Trazodone with oral administration for sleep quality and daytime function, with milder adverse reactions.
